BIG DATA & ADVANCED ANALYTICS
Prosoft provides big data services and solutions that enable organizations unlock business value and make intelligent decisions quickly.
We define three layers for our Big Data solutions:
- Big Data Platform: Engine for processing huge amounts of data in diverse formats. Hadoop and in-memory databases serve as such platforms.
- Analytics Software: Libraries equipped with high-level data analysis functions and data mining packages.
- Consulting: Frameworks and design best practices to offer solutions for each operation challenge.
Prosoft offers a full range of big data services, from consulting and strategy definition to infrastructure maintenance and support, enabling our clients to get vital insights from previously untapped data assets. We apply a proprietary big data framework combined with popular open-source technologies like Apache Hadoop, Spark, Flink, Storm, and Kafka as well as machine learning and deep learning algorithms to deliver a comprehensive tool set for storing, processing, and analyzing large quantities of data.
Prosoft’s big data services enable organizations to:
- Find the right approach to collecting and connecting with data.
- Connect the dots across data silos for generating actionable insights.
- Develop and implement big data solutions across all business verticals.
- Identify and resolve big data security risks ahead of time.
- Maintain and manage big data services with ease.
“We help organizations garner the right customer insights leading to newer revenue sources through cross sell and up sell driving profitability. From strategy road map, tech evaluation, and proof of concept to platform customization and implementation, our experts are always at hand to help you navigate all stages on your big data journey.”
As part of our Big Data services, we also offer an approach that supports Big data integration with Data Warehouse (DWH) to become a hybrid structure. In this hybrid model, the highly structured optimized operational data remains in the tightly controlled data warehouse, while the less structured and unstructured data that is highly distributed and subject to change in real time is in a data lake controlled by a Hadoop-based (or similar NoSQL) infrastructure. Today’s online business landscape generates increasing volumes of data in data sources; and it is inevitable that operational and structured data will have to interact in the world of big data, where the information sources have not (necessarily) been cleansed or profiled. Increasingly, organizations are understanding that they have a business requirement to be able to combine traditional data warehouses with their historical business data sources with less structured and vetted big data sources. Our hybrid offering supporting traditional and big data sources can help to accomplish these business goals.
“Combining historical business data with less structured data from big data sources (machine data, transactional data, public data, etc.) provides for uncovering hidden data patterns and correlations and getting insights that can drive business-improving actions, which is a huge step towards accurate forecasting and boosted profit.”
Our big data experts are great at using big data tools and technologies to turn your meaningless datasets into actionable insight and a competitive advantage – enabling you answer new questions; discover fixes to issues you haven’t noticed before; uncover new possibilities for your business. Then your analytics become the foundation of data-driven decisions that enable your organizations to replace best-guess decisions with real-time intelligence.”
Our Data Lake service enables organizations to define, design, and develop the capabilities of dealing with data of any size, shape, and speed. We help our clients empower their developers, data scientists, and analysts with the right tools to leverage quintillions of bytes of data. We enable organizations to:
- Create a reservoir for enterprise, social, and device information.
- Develop a scalable storage, compute, and access data layer.
- Enable data governance and enterprise-wide access controls.
- Reduce the time to access and locate data to accelerate preparation and reuse.
- Build and test customized analytics models with speed.
- Track and trace data lineage to ensure data quality and deliver reliable insights.
We develop custom Big Data management and analytics solutions, empowering your team to analyze high-speed information in real-time, producing relevant predictive correlations and patterns. Starting from understanding your big data to designing robust data architecture on cloud or premise or hybrid cloud, we help enterprises in their digital transformation journey. Our Big Data consulting team of Data Engineers, Data Analysts and Data Scientists empower such companies to overcome big data challenges and build a modern unified data platform with ease. Equipped with specialized Big Data skill sets, our teams adopt a strategic approach towards building Data Analytics & BI solutions on major cloud platforms.

Big Data Pipeline
We build data pipelines on top of a scalable architecture that support growth in data size, data sources, and data types without any drop in efficiency and encourage our clients to take advantage of cloud platforms that provide the ability to scale automatically without human intervention, such as AWS and Oracle.
Our experienced Data Engineers design and utilize tools and services – API, CLI, Terraform, SDK (Java, Python, Ruby, Go) …, Cloud Infrastructure Events, functions-as-a-service, etc. – from leading technology vendors and system integrators to build big data pipelines that are typically split into the following stages:
1. Data Sources
We recognize that without quality data, there’s nothing to ingest and move through the pipeline. Data sources are the wells, lakes, and streams where organizations first gather data. SaaS vendors support thousands of potential data sources, and every organization hosts dozens of others on their own systems. Therefore, as the first layer in a data pipeline, data sources are key to our design
In this phase, we load data from various sources, such as streams, APIs, logging services, or direct uploads. This data can originate from various devices or applications (mobile apps, websites, IoT-devices, and so on) and commonly has a nonbinary but semi-structured or unstructured format, such as CSV or JSON.
3. Data Lake
This phase is a processing step in which we hold raw data in a highly scalable, highly available, and inexpensive repository.
4. Preparation and Computation
In this phase, we extract data, transform it, and load it (ETL). Data preparation means a cleansed and conformant data format as an output for further processing. We do ETL as a batch or as a stream. Computation of data lets our data scientists create models from data; they might use incoming data to train machine learning models. Apache Spark and the Hadoop ecosystem are leading products we use.
5. Data Warehouse
In this phase, we store data in a structured format in a database. For Big Data, storage is only possible after ETL processing.
In this phase, we present data in analytics or business intelligence tools, commonly using graphics and providing filtering and dashboarding capability.
Big Data Reporting
Prosoft offers design, architecture, deploy the choice of Hadoop distributions, Time series databases, MPP databases, data processing using Hive, Sqoop, Pig, Spark, develop the solutions using Java, Scala, Python or Ruby on MongoDB, Cassandra, HBase, or others on AWS, Azure, Oracle or bare metal deployments. Prosoft can help implementing Data Lakes, perform the relational analysis using RedShift, Vertica or other systems, develop analytics with Spark, R, Python or others and do Visualization, business intelligence reporting using Tableau, Xplenty, Knime, Openrefine, Sisense or other systems. Prosoft can help organizations develop Preventive, Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics on the platform deployed or can develop custom built Sales Analytics, Service Analytics, Distribution Analytics or can even develop competitive analysis depending the data available. All these advanced analytics supports the decision-making process easy for increasing operational efficiency and to lower the costs.
